  • it would be B., bc its what the main subject is doing, or whatever. Its just an add on to the subject
  • The correct answer is B. Can be educators, administrators, or supervisors

    Explanation:

    According to grammar, the predicate refers to one of the main parts that compose a sentence besides the subject, which is the agent that carries out the main action in a sentence or is related to it. This means the predicate is mainly the main action or main verb of the sentence and any other information related to this action or the sentence complement. In the case of the sentence "Nurses can be educators, administrators, or supervisors" the subject is "Nurses" as this is the agent of the sentence, while other words of the sentence are the predicate composed by the main action "can be" and the complement "educators, administrators, or supervisors" that define what nurses can be. Thus, the predicate is "can be educators, administrators, or supervisors" as this is composed of the main action and the sentence complement which is what the predicate is about.
